Last week was very special for me. As I already said, we were on our international outreach week, basically to put into practice everything we’ve learned in the school so far.
I was part of a group who went to Woodstock Poland, and then be part of the staff of a camping for people who wanted to get closer to God and get to know Him more.
We were at Woodstock only for a weekend. There were loats of people, at least five hundred thousand, and most of them weren’t sober enough to mantain a conversation haha. But still we got to talk to many people because every morning we offered free breakfast. The fact that we offered some food surprised many people. “You came all that way just to feed the people of Poland?”, they couldn’t believe it, but it was the perfect oportunity to love on them and tell them about God’s love.
Then in the camp we didn’t really have many guests, only around five people. But we got to really know all of them, spend time together and make them feel special by giving our best to offer them the best camp even if they were a small group.
Nobody gave their life to Jesus on the spot at Woodstock, the camping didn’t have many guests. Many would say that it was a failure and why would you make such an effort. But all the time God kept telling me it was worth it.
I believe seeds were planted in people’s hearts, and one girl gave her life to Jesus at the camp. These days reminded me the value that a single soul has before God. One person is precious before the Father’s eyes, even if we did everything for just one person it would be worth it and I would do it all over again.
God loves in a very special way each and every person we had the chance to talk to, those who came to the camp and those who didn’t, even those who ate the free breakfast and didn’t want to talk to us haha, He really loves us, so much to send his only son to die for our sins on a cross, to offer free breakfast and to set up a whole camp just for five people.
That’s the same love Jesus has for you, you are in his thoughts. If He’s calling you don’t hesitate to answer.
I’m always praying for you, please pray for me as well :)
God bless you!
